Equipment Received As Part Of Homeland Security Fund

Smith County volunteer firefighters received some needed materials today. The items included a thermal imaging camera, a generator, a global positioning system, a gas powered ventilator and rescue saw, a special gas detection meter and cooling vests. These items were purchased with just a portion of the $760,000 Homeland Security Grant to Smith County.

Last month, law enforcement officers received WMD kits, including full face respirators and chemical protective suits.
